Update: Watch the game night below.
Last month Cinephile Game Night kicked off a brand-new season with our friends from Fangoria. We’re excited to announce that the show will return next week March 11 at 9pm/6pt with TCM Underground. The all-star lineup includes Turner Classic Movies’ Millie De Chirico, Quatoyiah Murry, Hemrani Vyas, Matthew Ownby, Benjamin Cheaves and Jacob Griswell. We’ll also be joined by special guests Shatara Michelle Ford, writer/director of Test Pattern which is playing in virtual cinemas now (check out our review here), and our brand-new host of The Film Stage Show Robyn Bahr.
Both teams will be playing in support of Southerners On New Ground and offering up some special film-related goodies to anyone who donates. (One lucky viewer who donated to our featured charity last month won a stack of blu-rays and a 1-year subscription to Fangoria Magazine.) You can catch the episode live on our Twitter feed or the next day embedded right here. Viewers are invited to tune in and follow along with the cinema-related fun!
In case you didn’t have a chance to check out the show, Cinephile Game Night is a series where film critics, podcasters, filmmakers and more go head-to-head to see who is the ultimate cinephile. Hosted by The Film Stage crew, including Jordan Raup, Conor O’Donnell, Dan Mecca, and Cinephile creator Cory Everett, each episode features a rotating guest list of cinephiles from your favorite pop culture podcasts and websites.
Teams have included pop culture sites (IndieWire, Little White Lies, SlashFilm, Collider, Bright Wall/Dark Room), podcasts (The Big Picture, Blank Check, Unspooled, The Flop House, We Hate Movies) and film institutions like Alamo Drafthouse and Vidiots. Players have included filmmakers (Alex Ross Perry, David Lowery), comedians (Paul Scheer, Demi Adejuyigbe), and even the legend, Leonard Maltin.
Each episode features players (or teams) facing off for three Cinephile games: Filmography, Movie-Actor, and Six Degrees. The player or team with the most points at the end of the night is crowned the winner. Internet glory ensues. Viewers are encouraged to donate to the highlighted charity or fund and those that do are entered to win a prize, generously donated by guests and hosts.
Stay tuned for announcements about upcoming guests and if there is a critic, podcaster, comedian or filmmaker you’d like to see on an upcoming episode, let us know!
